and so, i went on -- >> montana. >> and so i went searching for replacement coverage for the employees that had been laid off, only to find out that cobra doesn't apply to me because i have less than 20 employees. and that conservatively affects 80% of all workers in montana. so, they were pretty much out on their own. and i was wondering if what we can do to eliminate discrimination against small employers, as an example, we're a lumberyard, we're out there lifting boards and packing stuff all day long. every one of my remaining seven employees are fit. so, why are we and i as an employer able to provide a lesser level of benefits to my employees and yet an employer with 30 employees who sit in cubicles on their butts instead of working them off gets a better rate? >> that was a pretty good question. so, for all of you who are all sitting on your -- what did you call them? no. as i said, small businesses is probably as vulnerable as anybody. and one of the things that max has been working very hard on -- and this just doesn't get advertised, but i want to make sure e

the campaign, going viral and we will see the president tomorrow out in montana and colorado doing the same kind of town hall he did before. they are even trying to open these town halls up so they can refute these claims that they are stacking these town halls with people. >> here is a question that intreegs me. at these town hauls, these lawmakers go out there and have exchanges with their constituents, is it more likely that the lawmaker changes the view of the con stitt went or the con stitt went changes the view of the lawmaker? >> i think the way you said the question tells us the answer. the lawmaker comes back and thinks, i have got some information. politicians, they are magical thinkers. they are in their offices. they don't know what's going on. they have polls and wizards that come in and tell them what the public is thinking. sometimes they overrely on the reality they see in their immediate environment. >> i suspect a lot of these lawmakers will come back in september with different views than early august. >> certainly, they will know about the concerns out there. i don't kno

care system. so just yesterday -- [ applause ] just yesterday, i held a town hall in belgrade, montana. and we had a pretty good crowd. some were big supporters of reform. some had concerns and questions. and i got tough questions. but even though montana's had strong opinions, they didn't shout at one another, they were there to listen. and that reflects the american people. and what our democracy is about, a lot more than what's been covered on tv these last few days, and that's why i thank all of you, whether you're before or against health care for being here today. i'm going to take a bunch of questions, but before i do, i wanted to talk about what health insurance reform will mean for you, because there's a lot of misunderstandings out there. first of all, what we're proposing is a common sense set of consumer protections, for people with health insurance, people with private health insurance. i expect that after reform passes, the vast majority of americans are still going to be getting their insurance from private insurers. so we have got to have some protections in place for p

are working. teresa in montana, considering what this country's been through in the past decade, i'm surprised that more of us aren't on the happy pills. lily marlene in hawaii, as a person who's been on antidepressants and in therapy for over 20 years, i can say the drugs have become more effective and have fewer side effects. mixing them with therapy has proved to be a life-saving method method for me. we're talking about someone who becomes suicidal if i'm off the medications for three weeks. ike in atlanta says, it goes to show the problem with health care in america. doctors have to prescribe these drugs because they don't want to be sued for not doing so, even if the patient doesn't need them. the companies are happy because they make money. insurance covers it because they too make money. and the patient, he doesn't know any better. most people on antidepressants don't need them. it's all a scam. h. writes, i've taken antidepressants off and on for after 30 years after suffering postpartum depression. i talked about my feelings to psychiatrists until we were all blue in the face, but no

again for this weekend for two town hall meetings, first on friday in bolton, montana, then saturday in grand junction, colorado. wolf? >> he's going to be busy at both those meetings and other stops, as well. thanks very much, dan lothian. jack cafferty has "the cafferty file." jack? >>> there is another view of this, of course. when it comes to town hall meetings, the democrats might want to rethink their strategy. arlen specter and claire mccaskill are the latest to be drowned out by protesters. one woman in missouri told mccaskill, quote, if they don't let us vent our frustrations out, they will have a revolution, unquote. protesters at arlen specter's meeting said they think the obama administration is going too far with health care reform. one woman shouted out, quote, this is about dismantling this country. specter said he thinks the people proetsdsing are, quote, not necessarily representative of america, but he thinks they should be heard. president obama and the democrats seem to face an increasingly uphill battle with selling health care reform to a skeptical public. peopl

, nebraska, montana, north dakota. those states had democratic senators who voted for john mccain. he had to win enough of them over the get this bill to the senate. >> is it always a waste of time as paul seems to to suggest that the president could reach out and find some republicans who would work with him the him on this? >> i think he's entirely wrong. the center of gravity of american politics is not in the progressive wing, and the progressive movement is mature enough to understand that and support a president who is more liberal than conservative. if they're not mature enough, they can throttle his chances. but i do think that if the president had more shrewdly laid out his case it would have been harder to criticize it effectively. >> what you mean to say, if he would have come up with a plan instead of letting the democrats in congress come up with a plan. >> i think he allowed himself to have -- a plan with so few details, it's like a rorschach test. project everything positive on me, now they're projecting everything negative on me. >> bill clinton tried that and that didn't
